Recipe: Sourdough Pretzels

These pretzels make a great snack, morning or afternoon!


  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 1/2 cups sourdough starter
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt, (thick and well-drained)
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baker's yeast
  • Melted butter
  • Coarse sea salt, for topping


  1. In a large glass bowl, mix water, sourdough starter, flour, yogurt, sugar, butter, salt and yeast until a soft dough forms. Add more flour if the mixture is too sticky – a little sticky is okay. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, and then place in a greased bowl, covered, to rest for 45 minutes. It won’t rise much.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly greased work surface. Punch dough down a little and then cut into 12 pieces with a very sharp knife. Roll each piece into a 15-inch rope, shape into a classic pretzel and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet.
  4. Brush pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Bake 25-30 minutes or until light golden brown.
